    Not all of us have the disposable incomes that allow us to be decked out in designer every day of the week. Sob.

    Most of us have to stick to the high street and typically we have to wait for pay day to go shopping. However, this doesn’t stop us drooling over the clothes that we see scattered all over the fashion pages.

    Just because we can’t afford it, doesn’t mean we can’t dream.

    Well that changes right now.

    Fancy wearing a spot of Proenza Schouler? Obvs, right! Well guess what?! They’ve partnered up with Lancôme to create a one-off, limited edition collection.

    Yes we know it isn’t ‘technically’ wearing one of their dresses, but this is the next best thing, friends. One of their dresses is currently going for £775 on Net-A-Porter, but you can get one of their nail polishes for £15. Do we really need to help you do the maths here?

    The two designers, Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez, describe what inspired their make-up collection, ‘colour, in all its power and glory, we wanted strong shades and bold strokes. We immersed ourselves in work by painters like Ellsworth Kelly and Carmen Herrera with a distinctive and hard edged approach to colour and shape.’

    The products were created to mirror the Proenza Schouler designs – with colour at the forefront.
